   Go to http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/old/
and scroll down to the powerpc/R-2-2.1.dmg    This is a binary that 
will work on 10.3.9

The newer releases of R and the R-GUI that are precompiled require 10.4.4
As Kasper says, if you want a newer release you will need to compile 
from source, but the older version will work "right out of the box."
